Dammit, Now I Have To Watch

Sarah Brightman

I was going to deliciously boycott the Olympics this year and not watch a minute of them.

Why? I’m tired of the bratty American team expecting to win everything and complaining when they do not. I’m sick of the stories of doping. I don’t like that professional athletes are now allowed to participate. When I was a kid, the olympians were amateur athletes that competed in the games, then went on to other careers. Now, most of the big countries send career athletes. Not fair.

But now I found out that Sarah Brightman will be performing the official theme song at the opening ceremony. She’s my favorite singer, so now I have to watch at least some of the Olympics.

Dammit!

Canto Della Terra (Duet)

What Is It About Sarah Brightman?

Sarah Brightman

Sarah Brightman has a new musical recording.

I don’t know what to call them anymore: records? albums? CDs? music files? So, I’ll just say music.

Sarah Brightman is one of those artists that is hard to categorize. She’s one of my favorite sopranos. Her crystal clear voice can be big and strong. But she also has a pop voice that is soft and light. But then there’s that third voice, the musical theatre voice that can interpret lyrics and reach the back of a Broadway house.

Her new music, Symphony, is a perfect example of her range. She dips into gothic rock with Fleurs Du Mal, does a rocky pop duet with Paul Stanley on I Will Be With You, gives us another great romantic pairing with Andrea Bocelli on Canto Della Terra, and much more.

Symphony has 13 tracks in various languages. It’s available at Amazon for $12.99.

Here is a clip of Sarah performing two of the selections live on The Early Show.
